As it is beginning to get colder out, it can be hard to find the right thing to wear to keep warm, but not too warm. Thankfully, jean jackets are just the thing to get the job done, and (bonus!) look great while doing it. Wondering what goes with a jean jacket? Lucky for you, the guys over at Gilt MANual have laid it out for us plain and simple!
“What are the options to match with a light denim jacket?
Sunglasses. A white T-shirt. A white button-down. A white button-down with a tie. A blue button-down. A blue button-down with a tie. A pink button down… but probably not with a tie. A corduroy shirt. A flannel. Chinos. Of any color. Well, maybe except bright red. Cargo pants. Dark denim jeans. Light denim jeans. Cords. Cutoffs. A vintage watch.”

If the combination of denim and skin in this title got your attention, then you’re going to really dig the Lukasz Stepien Fall 2011 lookbook. Shot by Michał Kar & Maciej Piórko, it features a would-be boy band clad in dark denim with cleverly placed leather details, on-trend fur collar jackets, and killer croc print high-top kicks doing what pretty young pop stars do best: waiting backstage looking cool getting their pre-show rituals on, which apparently includes sitting around shirtless smoking a cig. Intrigued? We thought you would! Check out the full lookbook bellow.

We are really digging the latest A.Y. Not Dead Spring 2012 Lookbook. From it’s fitted jackets in leather, dark fitted denim with zipper details, and easy knits and tees the Argentinean brand has definitely got the look down for next spring. Though the color scheme is far from the usual spring colors, we have to admit we appreciate any collection that is easy to wear and designed for the everyday kind of guy that wants just enough edge in their wardrobe. Definitely ace in our book!

The PRPS Fall Winter 2011 collection was released in film and photographic lookbooks, both of which take us back to the days of the early American lifestyle, with a perfect blend of English and Native American influence. The denim work shirt with plaid detailing and the plaid button-down shirt with denim accents are great stylistic representations of the balance between the two different backgrounds, and we are loving them! While these pieces are what really set the collection apart, PRPS also has some great outerwear, knits, and quality denim jeans in light and dark washes for this season. Check out the line for yourself and find out what your fashion must-haves are for this fall.

So whether or not you’re hitting the books this fall or if you just want to freshen up your wardrobe, Mavi Jeans has plenty to choose from. And from the looks of this campaign, they are guaranteeing good style and some serious fun.
